(26 July). An unexpected joy. From afar the landing looked the usual black, grey and white. Walking around revealed amazing mounds of brilliant red moss, yellow moss, tiny rivulets and many flowers. At this landing we were almost caught by the moving ice sheet,  It was 1.4 nautical miles from us when we disembarked, only .2 when we rushed back to the ship thus escaping a potential huge problem!

     Near here, we passed CAPE CHELYUSKIN, the northernmost point of mainland Russia and of any another continental mainland.
